With its original hardwood doors, moulding and garden restored to perfection, The Eliza Thompson House B&B welcomes guests with elegance and authenticity. Visitors to the inn now have another glimpse of days past, as the mantle and wall behind the parlor fireplace were recently restored.
Recently, a beautiful heart of pine wall and hearth were discovered underneath layers of paint and plaster in the parlor, an area of the house added by Eliza in the 1870s. The heart of pine wall was being stripped of paint and plaster and was refinished to restore historical authenticity and charm to the inn.
“The wood around the fire place is beautiful,” said Susan Powers, innkeeper. “by restoring the wall and hearth to its original design, we’re completing part of the picture of the actual home where Eliza Thompson lived 161 years ago.”
Linda and David Glickstein, travelers and publishers of The Discerning Traveler, have provided this excellent overview of Savannah.
